    Smith v Wessex Water [1993] IT/12645/93 (0 other reports)

In Smith v Wessex Water a Bristol industrial tribunal (Chair: C G Toomer) draws an inference of racial discrimination from a failure to warn an African-British temporary employee that he was in danger of dismissal due to poor performance.

Mr Smith was employed as a temporary clerk in the respondents' debt recovery section.
